  • 2nd year
  • MA International Studies
  • Concentration in Comparative Politics
  • Regional Emphasis: Inter-American Studies

I am originally from Bulgaria, but immigrated to the United States 14 years ago and have lived in Colorado ever since. I received my BA in International Studies and Spanish in 2013 from the University of Denver and I am completing my MA in International Studies through a Dual Degree BA/MA Program at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies.

I chose the Josef Korbel School because of the flexibility of the International Studies program. I have been able to take classes on topics and geographic areas that are of particular interest to me that have allowed me to expand my knowledge and understanding of development and political theories and their global applications. In addition, I have taken skills classes that are preparing me for a career in public diplomacy after graduation. The school's faculty, reputation, and location also contributed to my decision to attend Korbel.
